  • Evaluating peer-supported screening as a hepatitis C case-finding model in prisoners
    This study evaluates peer-supported screening as a model of active HCV case finding within prisons with a secondary aim to describe the HCV cascade among those infected including linkage to care and treatment outcomes. The study was carried out in a medium-security Irish male prison with over 500 inmates. The authors conclude that peer-supported screening is an effective active HCV case-finding model to find and link prisoners with untreated active HCV infection to HCV care.
